**ADOPTED** RUFUS – sweet, shy 7 month old boy

Rufus is an adorable 6-7 month old Lab cross type puppy – he will grow to be medium-large in size, probably small Lab size. He is shy at first but is very loving and likes to lean into you for a fuss and cuddle on the sofa! Rufus is now in a foster home where his confidence is growing daily and he’s doing so well learning the world isn’t a scary place. He is great with cats, he loves the resident cat in his foster home. He was initially shy around dogs out and about, but he’s now learning that playing is really fun! He is really well behaved in the house for his age, he is nearly housetrained and is OK to be left for a few hours in a crate. He is such a sweet boy and will make a fantastic dog in a loving home where he will have some further training to allow him to grow up into a well rounded young man. As he is still shy, he would suit a quieter home with children over 14. We are looking for a home with some experience of shyer dogs who can continue the great work he’s already started with his fosterer and carry on with his socialisation and training.
